Scott interviews Ramzy Baroud about the conundrum Israel finds itself in today. On the one hand, they claim to be the only liberal democratic regime in the middle of a hostile region, and that they are committed to reaching peace with the Palestinians. On the other hand, Netanyahu’s government has no real intentions of a two state solution, or even of a single Israeli state where Palestinians are given full citizenship. Israel is quickly slipping into apartheid, says Baroud, with a clear message that Palestinians just don’t matter.
Discussed on the show:
- “Facing the Facts: Israel Cannot Escape ICC Jurisdiction” (Palestine Chronicle)
- Oslo Accords
- Palestine: A Four Thousand Year History
- The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine
